Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board

City of Skate is proud to work in partnership with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board in a long-term effort to improve and expand Minneapolis skateparks. Great parks make great communities. And, here in the Twin Cities, we have some of the best in the nation. In fact, the Trust for Public Land currently ranks Minneapolis and St. Paul number 1 and 2 in the nation on its annual ParkScore rating system. The Minneapolis Park System is governed by the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, and every four years voters electing nine commissioners: one from each of the six park districts, and three that serve at-large. The development and maintenance of Saint Paul’s nearly 200 parks is overseen by a 9-member board of commissioners. Please contact your park board representative and encourage them to support and fund the development of high quality skateparks.
